About this title
Eager to escape life on her family's farm, Alice Barrow moves to Lowell in 1832 and throws herself into the hard work demanded of "the mill girls." In spite of the long hours, she discovers a vibrant new life and a true friend -- a saucy, strong-willed girl named Lovey Cornell. Conditions at the factory become increasingly dangerous, and Alice finds the courage to represent the workers and their grievances. Although mill owner Hiram Fiske pays no heed, Alice attracts the attention of his eldest son, the handsome and reserved Samuel Fiske. Their mutual attraction is intense, tempting Alice to dream of a different future for herself.About the Author:
